A chord compendium

Astoundingly good, educational and entertaining. Loved the humour. If you are looking for advice and insight on practicing chord shapes and transposition/getting around the neck, this is it. Pete's advice is sound, take it slow and let it develop, but be consistent. Like anything good that comes in life, patience is the key. Consistency delivers. Just like this training.

Excellent!

I'm really a drummer who dabbles with guitar so this video was very effective in getting the concepts across for me! Covered a lot of ground without being overwhelming. Really inspired me to put my drum sticks down! RIP Pete!
